Meeting State Standards in Writing and Reading, and Using Computers for Reading-Writing

Purpose of the Research

Teachers are held accountable for all of their students meeting state standards in writing and reading, yet little research exists on how best to do so in the upper elementary, middle school, and beginning high school grades. The goal of this research is to show how computerized instruction based on over 20 years of research on normal writing and reading development can help more students meet these high stakes standards. We will also evaluate the optimal computer tools for writing for individual students. Related brain imaging and genetics studies are available for interested participants.
